N. Kenneth La Fleur - Application of Social Learning Theory in Counselor Education
Instructor comments about topic
The topic will have three major sections: (1) the major theoretical tenets of social learning theory, (2) examination of the use of self-efficacy constructs and modeling in counselor training, and (3) presentation and discussion of an example of a counselor training graduate program based on social learning principles.
I expect that all participants will have carefully read the assigned material from the selected reference list prior to our meeting. Each participant should come to class with two specific counselor skills or qualities thought by the participant to be important objectives in a graduate counselor education program. The two skills or qualities should be written out on paper. During class we will review and explore the major constructs of social learning theory and the applications to counselor education pedagogy. I will present and we will discuss a program based on social learning theory. We will brainstorm about specific pedagogical activities focused on the two skills or qualities identified by each participant prior to the class meeting.
